Why Do Our Virginia Representatives Support Government Spying?

The House passed an amendment on June 19 to require the National Security Agency (NSA) and other intelligence agencies to obtain a warrant prior to collecting the communications of American citizens. This is pretty basic stuff, and it’s not a partisan issue - the amendment passed with the support of 158 Democrats and 135 Republicans.

House Passes Amendment to Limit the NSA's Spying - See How Your Representative Voted Here!

On Thursday night, the House of Representatives voted on an amendment (H.Amdt. 935), led by Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY), that would require the NSA and other intelligence agencies to follow due process and obtain a warrant to collect the communications of American citizens. Congress has come close to passing limitations on government surveillance since Edward Snowden exposed the extent of the NSA's intrusion into our privacy, but consistently came just a few votes shy.

Key Vote YES on DoD Amendment to Rein in the NSA

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks activists nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and urge him or her to vote YES on the Sensenbrenner amendment to H.R. 4870, the Department of Defense Appropriations bill. Co-sponsored by a bi-partisan coalition that includes Reps. Amash, Lofgren, Conyers, and Massie, this amendment would disallow any funding in the bill from being used to search for the communications of U.S. citizens gathered without a warrant.

The IRS Thinks We’re All Idiots

The government seems to have a data problem. While the NSA has apparently been storing massive amounts of data on innocent Americans deep within its sinister archives, the IRS and the US Census Bureau just can’t seem to keep track of anything. What a difference an acronym makes.

FreedomWorks Statement on Weakened USA Freedom Act

Along with many other pro-civil liberties groups, FreedomWorks endorsed the USA Freedom Act introduced by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner. The original bill contained language that would end the NSA’s bulk collection of data and increase transparency in government. We acknowledged that it wasn’t the perfect bill but it was a step in the right direction to reform the NSA. We had hoped that it would be voted on without significant changes that undermine the intent of the USA Freedom Act.
